Seeking solutions to air pollution, congestion, and Climate: the role of transportation and mobility

CSE organised a roundtable discussion on “Transport and climate: building an agenda for action” along with the Global Partnership on Sustainable, Low Carbon Transport in New Delhi on November 18, 2009. This brought together experts, policy makers, and civil society groups to discuss the climate imperatives of the transportation sector.

Climate and Transport

For the first time, Indian regulators are faced with this explicit connection – curb local air pollution to save lives, and at the same time, shrink carbon and energy imprints of vehicles to save fuels and the climate. But this synergy is the weakest link in our policies today. We are caught in serious trade-offs instead.

Health, climate and vehicles

The recently-released annual global energy trend tracker, World Energy Outlook (WEO), 2007 of the International Energy Agency, has sounded the alert on India crossing the tipping point of per capita GDP of $3000.

Can we afford not to change? Can we afford the change?

The to-be-or-not-to-be question of our age. Given the crisis that confronts us—inequality and poverty in our immediate midst and growing climate insecurity in our world—we have no choice but to change. But how will this change be afforded? If we cannot find an answer to this one, what we will get is a lot of talk and little action. In fact, we will regress, literally and deliberately.
